The occurrence of a species only known as a native of Europe and western Asia in
the interior of Sikkim, without any known intermediate station, is very remarkable;
bat the Sikkim specimens agree so exactly with the species to which we have referred
them, that the identity of the two cannot* be doubted. Our specimens, however,
are not numerous, and are in flower only. They were all obtained in one locality,
arid the species was not observed in any other part of Sikkim. This may, however,
perhaps bo ascribed to its slender subscandcnt habit, rather than to its rarity. It
will probably be found to be a native of Western China, and to extend thence to
Eastern Siberia, where a very similar species (A. voludi/e, Pall.) appears to be
common.
